Preserved Red Beancurd


Preserved red beancurd, also known as Shanghai red bean curd, is an essential ingredient in Chinese BBQ pork char siu.

The preserved red beancurd is tofu fermented in a brine made from rice wine, salt water and monascus red rice, a deep red yeast that colours the liquid. Over time, the breakdown of proteins softens the bean curd and develops intense umami pugency - praised in stir-fries and braised vegetable dishes. The red yeast also gives the red colour to char siu roast meat, red-braised Chinese dishes or even fish.

Refrigerate after opening and use within a few days. Ingredients: soybean, wine, salt, sugar, red rice. Contains soy & gluten.
